November 3, 2017 - Fan Creations
I don’t do this very often, but visitors have been mailing me about things, and I’ve been very remiss in getting to them. So in addition to updating the Links section, I thought I’d give a few shout-outs:
  • Mega Man Maker - AKA Mega Maker, a game focused on creating game levels.
  • 20XX - This is a non-Mega Man game that plays in the style of Mega Man, released on Steam. Hey, if Mighty No. 9 can get away with it, these guys ought to be able to as well. Key feature: 2-player co-op.
  • Mega Man Mania collage - This one’s artwork, not a game, but man, it must have taken a long time to put it together. It’s so big it’s in chunks.
  • Super Mighty Power Man - Another Mega Man-style game, but this one being developed for console systems like the 3DS and possibly PS4 and Xbox One. There’s more information on the Facebook page.
  • English covers - Various anime musics (e.g. openings, etc.) redone in English lyrics, similar to Tales of Vesperia’s Ring a Bell English opening. Mega Man X4’s Japanese opening is redone here.
  • C-Busters - A crowd-funded heavy-metal remix of classic Mega Man musics.
September 19, 2017 - Mega Man LEGO
Remember the 1-Up I once made out of LEGO? Yeah, this isn’t it. But there’s a Mega Man LEGO kit being proposed that, like the Minecraft sets, could hit stores as a real product if enough people sign on. And I remember back in the day, I made do with the blue astronauts with blue helmets...
July 22, 2017 - Mega Man Movie
Yes, there’s talk of a possible Mega Man movie to be released by 20th Century Fox. I don’t personally know any concrete details (live action? animated?) but I’m sure we’ll hear more about it as time progresses unless the deal falls apart.
June 6, 2017 - Legacy Collection 2
A sequel (of sorts) to the Legacy Collection has been announced, which, continuing where the first left off, consists of Mega Man series games 7, 8, 9, and 10. This is a bit more of a smorgasbord, though, since unlike the NES titles from the previous collection, these span at least three different systems. It’s not a simple matter of tossing an NES emulator on there and calling it good. And considering I’m not sure whether MM9 and MM10 used an emulator or a brand new custom engine, it’s possible they’ll find themselves emulating an emulator. Ah, fun times are ahead indeed.
February 26, 2017 - MIDIs and MODs
There hasn’t been a new Song of the Whenever in a while, but we have a new participant in the MIDIs & MODs section!
November 17, 2016 - Mega Man Pixel Tactics
I somehow missed their board game, but there is a Mega Man card game in the works that as far as I can tell is authorized by Capcom even though it’s a Kickstarter. The project is a go and it looks like it will ship in July. This reminds me of how horribly out-of-date my original Toys section has become. Which is actually a good thing—it’s due to the fact that there is such a large amount of Mega Man merchandise available to us now!
August 5, 2016 - Project X Zone 2
Project X Zone 2 is up. Hey, I was only six months late with this one!
June 11, 2016 - Mega Man Legacy Collection
Mega Man Legacy Collection is up; sorry about the delay. Next up: Project X Zone 2!
June 9, 2016 - Links
I’ve just done another pass of the Links Section, including some older links that never got incorporated due to a bug in the link submission form. X_X
May 27, 2016 - “Mega Man” TV Show
More details have been released regarding the new Mega Man TV show that is being produced. I am a little surprised to read that apparently they aren’t even going to try to stick to the plot of the games at all, but are simply taking the “Mega Man” name and a few miscellaneous inspirations from the series and going off on their own. The character design looks like a mix between X and Star Force—which, speaking of Star Force, that’s probably a good comparison regarding the chosen plot direction. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this, of course, and it means the plots will be new and not quite as predictable. And it’s not like we don’t already have enough different Mega Men to completely befuddle any newcomers to the series as it is...just look at the selector image above. =)
April 10, 2016 - Mega Man Legends 2
I’ve been getting a bunch of emails about Mega Man Legends 2 being made available on PSN. Which speaks to the popularity of the game, I think. I’ve been trying to keep the Game List and Game Counter updated with these sorts of re-releases, but otherwise I haven’t been announcing them all. This may have been an oversight on my part; if you have one of these systems that supports downloadable titles, be sure to browse through the Game List and see if any of them catch your eye!
February 15, 2016 - Interview
A reader brought to my attention this translation of an interview between one of the developers of the original Mega Man games (“A.K” in the credits) and one of the (probably more well-known) artists for some of the Rockman manga (he did Megamix, among many others). What I find amusing about this arrangement is ordinarily you would expect both of these men to be interviewed, rather than one of them interviewing the other.
February 3, 2016 - Mighty No. 9
A lot of people have been asking if I’m going to be writing up Game Hints for Mighty No. 9. The answer is: I haven’t decided yet. If I do, it might or might not be directly as part of this site (since it’s not really Mega Man), but I’ll let you know.
November 6, 2015 - Links Section Update
Thanks to everyone who has weighed in on the previous post about the Links page! As requested, that section will remain for the foreseeable future, and be kept updated in its typical sporadic fashion. =)
September 4, 2015 - Links Section
I’ve updated the Links page, but I’ve been thinking for a while of retiring the entire section. When I first created it, the web was still in its infancy and search was unreliable at best, so I thought a listing of Mega Man sites would be a helpful resource. Nowadays we have several very good Internet search engines that will likely turn up any of the sites in the Links section that you might be hunting for. Still, if people find value in the Links section I’ll keep maintaining it; let me know what you think. I may keep a listing of fan-made games around since I’m not sure whether there’s anywhere else online that has a listing all in one place. (If you know of one, point me to it, and I’ll just link to that instead of maintaining one of my own.)
August 5, 2015 - Of Legacy Games
Mega Man Legacy Collection has a release date now, and an announcement that it will also be available in cartridge/disc form. Capcom Unity has been posting about the game near daily. On a semi-related note, as you can see for example here, they are actually selling some of the volumes of Rockman Complete Works on the PSN, in Japanese, for English audiences.
June 9, 2015 - Mega Man Legacy
Back around the time that Mega Man Legends 3 was canceled, people were asking what Capcom was going to do with Mega Man. It seems the answer to that is: Re-release the classic games over and over again. Now that Capcom has just about finished releasing the most of the older titles on the Nintendo eShop and PSN, they’ve announced a new collection of the first six NES games. Back in the old days, games came with manuals chock full of artwork. Nowadays, since manuals have been done away with, the artwork comes digitally on the game disc as extras instead. (Personally speaking, I’m not sure what the 1080p has to do with anything. It’s not like square pixels are any less blocky for having more pixels to display them. The resolution should be nice for the museum, though.)
June 4, 2015 - Mega Man Cartoon
Huh, so apparently they’re aiming to create another Mega Man TV show. It’s hard to say from the initial announcement, but sounds to me like it’s going to be original series again. It’s also hard to say whether it’s going to be anime-style or more catered to American audiences like the Mega Shows were; the announcement just says “worldwide release” so that could mean anything. If it is “Westernized” and not anime, then speaking personally, I hope it’s more along the animation style of Avatar as opposed to, say, Teen Titans Go, but that’s probably because I’m old-fashioned.
April 16, 2015 - GBA Games
What do you know: Mega Man & Bass will now be available on virtual consoles as well! (Specifically the Wii U right now.) Remember back when the game was available only on the Japanese SNES? Now you can get it fresh and (sort-of) new—along with a mishmash of other titles to boot.
March 8, 2015 - Project X Zone
Finally had a chance to sit down with Project X Zone again. Too bad the battles take so long near the end. I guess I forgot to post that last bit of music as well, didn’t I? Well, better late than never!
